About the Trainers

Katie Fassbinder, M.D.

It is a great honor to be collaborating with the masterful faculty of Elemental Psychedelics to bring this immersive ketamine training offering to the beautiful Driftless Region of Wisconsin.  A shared vision for this training is to increase access for providers and residents of the Midwest to innovative psychedelic therapies that are rooted in ancient wisdom, ethics, and current evidence.

Practicing as a psychiatrist in rural and urban Wisconsin over the past 20 years, my focus has been on fostering healing and wholeness through authentic connection.  My work has largely been in the public sector, where I have served as the Medical Director for mental health services in four different counties in Southwest Wisconsin.

Inspired by the re-emergence of psychedelic medicines in the realm of psychiatry and the profound opportunities that these medicines offer for transformative inner work, I founded Inner Guide Integrative Psychiatry in Viroqua, Wisconsin.  There I provide individual and group ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, in addition to adult psychiatric care, Reiki, and auricular acupuncture.  I also serve as a co-facilitator for ketamine group work alongside the Integrata team under the clinical direction of Dr. Chantelle Thomas at the Usona Institute’s immersive psychedelic training programs in Madison, Wisconsin.

As one of the physician instructors at the Elemental Psychedelics ketamine training, I aspire to provide clear, evidence and practice-based, up-to-date, pragmatic clinical information that will help prepare both prescribers and non-prescribing mental health professionals for their own ketamine-assisted therapy practices.

Erin M. Curtis, MD

Throughout my medical career, I have been aware of the power of integrating scientific medicine with deep psychospiritual and collective practices. As a clinician and clinical educator, I am attracted to the places where biological, psychological, relational, spiritual, environmental, generational, and collective factors intertwine. Working in these fields simultaneously can feel challenging and sometimes contradictory, and yet I’ve found that the intersections are fertile ground for exploration and growth. I have worked to develop a practice style that uplifts the helpful aspects of these disciplines while respecting and accounting for the areas of limitation, bias, and fallibility within each.

My professional interests include trauma, addiction, health equity, community mental health, family constellations, somatics, dream work, integrative medicine and entheogen/psychedelic medicine. I am a lifelong student of history, humanities, mythology, ritual, and earth-based spirituality. These interests have enriched my work and provided deeper context for understanding clinical and societal problems, and their potential remedies. My clinical style is creative, collaborative and practical. I have unique experience in working with medical trauma.

By training, I am board certified in general and addiction psychiatry.  I completed undergrad at Virginia Tech where I studied psychology and classical studies. I completed medical school at the University of Pittsburgh in 2005, and was elected by my classmates to the Gold Humanism Honor Society. I completed general psychiatry residency and addiction psychiatry fellowship at University of Wisconsin in 2010, where I was a co-Chief Resident and earned an award for clinical excellence. I completed an Integrative Medicine fellowship at the University of Arizona in 2012. I am a volunteer faculty member at University of Wisconsin and have participated in their Dream Group for many years and served as a lecturer and supervisor for psychiatry residents, addiction therapists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. My background in spirituality and ritual began in the Christian church but pivoted to animism, ecstatic ritual, and pagan mythologies at an early age. I have organized events, taught, and learned and facilitated ritual within the Reclaiming tradition and in my backyard.

My psychedelic medicine practice centers group journey work using ketamine. I collaborate with Elemental Psychedelics, Usona, Integrata, Dr. Katie Fassbinder, and several other clinicians providing individual KAP in southern Wisconsin. I practice general psychiatry at Rock County Human Services, where I serve individuals with severe and complex mental illness. In that role I provide clinical teaching and supervision and I serve on their Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Committee. I am a consulting psychiatrist for The Manor, a residential addiction treatment program. My family lineage is Irish-American Catholic and Appalachian. Developing my awareness of the complexity of these identities is a lifelong practice of personal inquiry and accountability. I am queer, married, a mother of 2, a lover of dogs and naps. I live in Madison, WI, which is in the ancestral lands of the Ho-Chunk people. My pronouns are she/they. I am grateful for every breath.
